A Closer Look At The Upcoming 1/72 Oracle

Here are some pictures of the Armored Core: Last Raven version of Evangel’s Oracle, soon to be released by the end of December this year. Collectors should be happy to know that this kit will contain a new set of legs (DINGO2) and a core (C89E) never seen in any AC kit before it in addition to the GERYON2 back-mount.

Upcoming Armored Core Merchandise From Kotobukiya

The Last Raven incarnation of Oracle seems to be a confirmed kit, and a fully painted sample exists as seen above which might make its debut sometime this year.

Another upcoming Armored Core collectible series simply called “Fugitto Mechanicals” is expected to get a 2011 release, whether this compliments the current Variable Infinity series of model kits or a totally new line of models we don’t know as of the moment. You can view some promotional materials after the jump:

New Armored Core Model Oracle V2?

That Kotobukiya tweet we covered the last time might lead to this. The Last Raven version of Oracle, the featured AC back in Armored Core Nexus with a few tweaks, namely a change in legs, core, and a different back mount. Could this be the upcoming AC kit that will soon grace our shelves in the coming months? Stay tuned to find out.

If your memory needs a bit of refreshing on what he’s supposed to look like, click the jump for a short video of the AC in action:

Cryptic Kotobukiya Tweet: Hint Of Next AC Model?

A short cryptic tweet from Kotobukiya may hint of a new upcoming Armored Core model kit that might make its debut on September, possibly during Wonder Festival. The message above has a few keywords that might make it easier for AC fans to decipher, these include “2, and Blue” your speculation is as good as ours, but our guess is a Variable Infinity edition of Armored Core 2’s cover AC Ethermaster as seen after the jump:

GA Sunshine Model Kit Confirmed

Oh you’re my only sunshine! The GA SUNSHINE model kit we were hoping to exist will indeed materialize soon. The kit seems to feature a dessert tan finish, two sets of two weapons (CHEYENNE-02 missiles and the basic GA bazooka), which makes it essentially a stripped down version of the game version’s weapons (much like the Rosenthal kit prior to the Noblese Oblige release). Still we’re pretty excited for this one.

Also, an awesome looking Frame Arms model kit which looks like it can exist in the realm of Armored Core as well. Frame Arms picture after the jump:

GA Sunshine AC Model Kit

Dare I say that I’m screaming like a fangirl along Otome Road? This scanned picture from the latest issue of Hobby Japan (or Dengeki Hobby Magazine, we really couldn’t tell) shows what seems to be a planned model kit from Kotobukiya’s Variable Infinity line of Armored Core models. This next attraction comes in the form of the GA SUNSHINE, one of the default corporate sponsored ACs available to the player in Armored Core 4 and Armored Core: For Answer. The kit appears to feature two bazookas and two missile packs, though this may change as time goes by. No plans for a release date as of the moment, but it is definitely something to look out for if you want an AC on the heavy side.

Thanks J.E. for making us go Kyaaa~.
